The agreement will see Wates Partnerships develop stadium and residential works near Aldershot’s EBB Stadium, with backing from Rushmoor Borough Council. It is expected the planning application will be submitted in 2023.
It is expected to facilitate the regeneration of the football stadium in the town centre. The sale of the new homes planned should generate sufficient value to enable vital advancements to the club to be realised, helping to provide a sustainable future for Aldershot Town Football Club.
Wates Partnerships is part of the Wates Group, a privately-owned construction, residential development, and property services company in the UK. Aldershot Town Football Club is a professional association football club in the Vanarama National League, based in Aldershot, Hampshire.
“This is an important project for the Partnerships team at Wates and the result of many months of hard work. We’re proud to be working with Aldershot Town FC on this project,” said Craig Horn, director for Wates Partnerships, adding “We are very much looking forward to progressing plans to provide new club facilities and new homes, which will secure the football clubs’ future as a real community asset.”
A timetable for community engagement and local consultation, to help shape the improvements, will be announced in the coming weeks.
“We are absolutely delighted to announce this major Agreement that will secure the future and provide sustainable opportunities for Aldershot Town Football Club,” said Shahid Azeem, chair of Aldershot Town FC.
